Out comes the sun, and dries up all the rain

Melbourne is so fickle when it comes to the weather, yesterday it was almost as though Mother Nature couldn't be bothered and thought, you know what the hell with it, no sun today, rain it will be.
Seriously, I had jeans and a jacket on yesterday, today I wore this. I'm so used to dressing for the weather and I don't really mind, it kind of gives you a chance to wear your wardrobe all year around.
I bought these brogue/oxfords in Adelaide some 2 years ago now and I love them. They were by a local shoe maker, Kelly and I got them at Club House Lane boutique when it was in Croydon. If there are any locals out there could you let me know where I might find them, or something similar?
I'll be in Adelaide shortly so if there are any places I need to eat/visit/shop/photograph/meet then let me know!
In other housekeeping news I'm bumping up the Peppermint Mag and earring give-away to end THIS week, Thursday 10th of November. I have no idea why I put it on for so long, I've got far too much stuff to give away before Christmas so I didn't think you'd all mind :)
Movies tickets, vintage dresses, it's all coming up.....................

I find it quite annoying sometimes living in Melb with the whole 4 seasons in 1 day occurring's never constant and I can never seem to know what to wear coz once I leave the house it will suddenly turn cold or hot~~~~ hahahahaha... Loving what you have on so soft, feminine and flow-y

Jordan said...

I love the 'wearing your wardrobe all year round' aspect of Melbourne!

AHAHa I blogged about the weird weather as well. It's apparently going to thunderstorm tomorrow night again :( I had to get some of my winter stuff out of storage.

You rock that look, so fabulously 50s, and I love your watch too!

Great photo with that light on the 1srt pic!

Haha, I hate packing for trips that include Melbourne, because I always bring the wrong thing, even if I check the forecast :P

ooh, giveaways, how very Santa of you Lady M =D

Louise Cornegé said...

Those brogues are very cool.
Happy packing!

Jay said...

When I lived in Adelaide I'd always leave town for 'serious' shopping - I'm going back for Christmas though so will be keen to see what you get up to in Adelaide! The only 'restaurants' I'd recommend there would be Chocolate Bean on Union St, or Cocolat on Rundle St. Yum!

Lady Melbourne said...

Apple Daisy Girl- mmmm thanks, I wouldn't mind a pair in a really pale grey....that's what I'm looking for anyhow!

Uinisan- it can be so frustrating I know! I guess layering is key, sometimes I don't always include all the layers I wear, but they are there I promise!

Jordan- me too :)

angelaseeangelablog- it's a little crazy considering that it's summer yeah? I just put all my winter clothes into storage too.

Silverbeige- thanks!

RetroJetGirl- I think packing/dressing for Melbourne weather is one of those mythical things that it's your blood. I got your package too by the way, expect a post soon ;)

Louise Cornegé- ta!

Jay- anything to do with chocolate has my vote! I believe I can shop in any city, and in any situation. I love going to the supermarket, so if that gives you an indication I will be shopping hard in Adelaide!

Turtle said...

Very sophisticated :)

Melbourne's weather has been fickle for a long time. I've lived in Melbourne all my life and still to this day find it a pain at times to adapt to the four seasons that Melbourne throws at me in a day.

I went to Sydney for a few days and it was gorgeous, unlike Melbourne's weather.

goodness me yes, i can help with le adelaide guide! first, we now have fivethousand! yay!

i could rattle on all day about what to do, but here are some ideas off the top of my head. give the places a google if you want some more precise info!

hype and seek and azalia boutique are out on queen st, croydon.

general shops:

i love right hand distribution, das and shop 5, all on ebenezer place. there is also a vintage shop there whose name has escaped me! hero...? i think.)

youthworks on gawler place/grenfell st is quite good.

if you're up for a bit of higher-end stuff, try the new guard on unley rd, unley.

queen st cafe, croydon

cork wine cafe, gouger st

bliss organic, compton st

espresso royale, magill rd.

Isn't it funny? I live in southern Europe, it's winter here, but apparently we have similar weather- a lot colder here of course, since it's winter, but there's no sun here today as well. I hate rainy days whether it's summer, winter or spring.

georgeface said...

Canberra is exactly the same.

mom & son said...

you're so gorgeous
and i always like your photo concept here.

HoneyBunny said...

Oh, you look so elegant darling! The shoes are just adorable<3

I really do love the circle skirt you made for yourself. I saved your instructions in my DIY Evernote notebook. I might make myself a skirt by the end of the year!

Hippie Frou Frou said...

cool pattern on that skirt, and i really dig the shades!
